Millwall announced yesterday that Bradford City left back James Meredith would join up on July 1.

The 29 year old has made over 200 appearances for Bradford having joined them from York City in 2012, and in putting pen to paper on a two year contract he comes manager Neil Harris’ first capture following our return to the Championship.

The player will undergo a medical when he returns from holiday next week and he has two caps for Australia.

Speaking to the official site, Harris explained.

‘It’s important for us now at Championship level that we strengthen positions across the park and James’ arrival certainly does that. Competition for places is vital if we’re to be successful.’


‘He adds further quality to our left-hand side and arrives in form having enjoyed a brilliant season for Bradford. James has been putting in consistently good performances for some time, including against us, and I’m looking forward to working with him once pre-season training begins in the latter part of June.’

Meredith himself said of the switch.

‘I met Neil and he came across so well. He’s ambitious and has big plans both for the football club and for me as an individual, which is exactly what you want to hear and made Millwall the most attractive option for me. I’m looking forward to meeting and getting to know my new team-mates during pre-season. There’s a lot of hard work ahead because the Championship is a very demanding League with tough games every week.’


‘I’m excited for what the future holds and can’t wait to play as a Millwall player at The Den. Whenever I’ve played there before the atmosphere has been great.’
